I don't know how far you are in programming, but creating a real
compiler is a difficult thing.
But there are alternatives between a compiler and an interpreter.

Perhaps one of these is a solution for you:

1) You could make a converter to a programming language for wich 
you do have a complier. Examples for this are p2c, f2c, ...

2) Another interresting solution I found in the program BEC. It creates
a pseudo-code and then it attaches the pseudo-code to the interpreter,
so you just have one single executable. When you start the executable,
you start the interpreter and this reads the pseudo-code from itself,
ie. from the same file. But the enduser doesn't have to know about
that. ;-)

btw. "pseudo-code" is simply the source code with the commands 
replaced by single bytes. Comments may be stripped away.
